Pentiment and Hi-Fi Rush will have a physical version for Xbox, although in a limited way.


The debate about the physical versions of video games has come to the forefront after the countless amount of information that has appeared in this regard in relation to Xbox. After the departure of the entire team dedicated to the production of this kind of products, Phil Spencer clarified this week that they have no plans to abandon the physical video game market, although they will not make efforts to push them if the public does not show interest in it. Following this, it has been confirmed that two new games from the company will receive copies in their physical version, as is the case of Pentiment and Hi-Fi Rush.

The games from Obsidian Entertainment and Tango Gameworks have been on the market for quite some time now, but it has not been until now that they have confirmed that they will come out with a physical version on Xbox. After confirming their release on both PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch, Limited Run Games was quick to announce that it was working on copies in this format for both games.

The physical version of Pentiment and Hi-Fi Rush is being handled by Limited Run Games.

In the case of Pentiment, the company confirmed that they will be releasing a physical version of the game for all three platforms: PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch and Xbox Series X|S. Although the game arrived yesterday to the different stores, it will not be until next March when this physical edition will be available. Specifically, the company has established a reservation period that runs from February 22 to March 24, being this the date on which the game will be available.

In the case of Hi-Fi Rush, the company has not yet opened a reservation page or talked about when it will be available. In fact, it was Tango itself that first confirmed that it was working with the store to bring the game in physical format to PlayStation 5 and Xbox X|S Series. The game will be available digitally from March 19, so it is to be expected that we still have to wait a few months until we can see the physical edition on sale.

The good news is that physical lovers will finally be able to have their copy of Pentiment and Hi-Fi Rush in their collection, even if it’s not through Microsoft itself. Let’s hope that sales go well, so that Redmond will continue to support the physical format in their next games.
